Today is special . Why?
- We have a “My Gutsy Story” last-minute WINNER
- I’m signing books at WH Smith in Paris from 5-7pm tonight
- Madeline Sharples, nominated me as a “Master Networker” and I’m grateful for her hosting me on her blog today.
As many of you know, I’m in Paris and due to the time difference (9 hours ahead of California,) I’m watching the last-minute voting.
Jerry Waxler is the WINNER of the November “My Gutsy Story.”
Congratulations Jerry. This was a very close call with 2nd place winner Susan Weidener.
Sonia Marsh Says: “I am on board with your global vision of sharing our stories and breaking down barriers through a Memoir Revolution.”
Susan Weidener won 2nd place. This was such a close race, and I want to congratulate you Susan for your inspiring “My Gutsy Story.”
Sonia Marsh Says: What an inspiring story of courage and re-inventing yourself after the loss of the man you loved. I am sure your memoir can help us feel “energized” and motivated to follow our passion, just as you did.
Jerry Holl: won 3rd Place.
Sonia Marsh Says: This is really a true example of a “My Gutsy Story,” Jerry. You did what so many long to do: quit their corporate job, and take off to follow an adventure or a passion.
Elaine Masters: Your story was amazing.
Sonia Marsh says: “You prove something that I am a firm believer of: getting away from the familiar, getting out of your comfort zone to an unfamiliar environment helps you grow and strengthens you as a person.”
DECEMBER IS DIFFERENT.
I am posting from Paris this week. I plan to share stories and photos, from Paris and London, where I am doing an event at WHSmith on December 13th.
I am collecting new “My Gutsy Story” submissions for 2013. NOW is the time to submit your own “My Gutsy Story” and get published in our Anthology. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
